Christmas Around Milwaukee Bakery Tour

Travel around the world and back while never leaving Milwaukee on our Christmas Around Milwaukee Bakery Bus! An excellent opportunity to celebrate Christmas with friends while sampling (and if desired, purchasing additional) delicious holiday cookies from a collection of our favorite bakeries in Milwaukee!

Guests on the nice list (and even the naughty list) will be treated to signature cookies, candies and pastries from a collection of 6-8 of Santa’s favorite bakeries in Milwaukee! We encourage everyone to dress for the occasion; Santa hats, Elf stockings, ugly Christmas sweaters, pretty Christmas sweaters…all are welcome on the Christmas Around Milwaukee Bakery Bus!

If you need to cancel your reservation for any reason, as long as you cancel 24 hours prior, we will refund your tickets with no penalty to you.
